CHROMOSATURATION POUR UNE ALLÉE, PARIS, 1965/2012
DATE: EVERY YEAR, FROM MAY TO OCTOBER
VENUE: DOMAINE DU MUY, FRANCE
Since 2015, Cruz-Diez's Chromosaturation pour une allée (1965/2012) has been integrated to the “Parcours” at the Domaine du Muy, located in the south of France.
The artwork - an immersive installation composed of three saturated color chambers - offers an unexpected experience for visitors of the Domaine, who experience pure color by viewing the landscape through red, green and blue filters. A unique dialogue between nature and art that evolves constantly as the light changes, taking the viewer into an absolute monochromatic situation that disturbs his retina and makes him rethink the whole notion of color.
Conceived by Jean-Gabriel Mitterrand and his son Edward, the Domaine du Muy, located in the south of France, offers every summer an open-air tour punctuated by about 40 contemporary works by worldwide artists such as Peter Kogler, Xu Zhen or Francisco Sobrino to name a few.
Cruz-Diez's main goal was to make people and the world a happier place. He made interactions more human, and our bond with his art more profound.
